Two new exhibits are coming to Middlesex Community College, 100 Training Hill Road in Middletown.
In the Pegasus Gallery, in the library on the first floor of Chapman Hall, “Sonya Suydam Gill: Color” will open on Monday, Jan. 28, and run until Friday, March 22.
Gill works primarily in abstracted landscape paintings. Gill says, “I paint those things that are part of my life. I love flowers, the water and often in my still lifes, incorporate lively fabrics in vivid colors. I could not live in a world without color.”
Pegasus hours are Monday to Thursday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., when classes are in session.
On Feb. 4, The Niche, an art space in Founders Hall across from the registrar’s office, will present “Drawn from Life,” an exhibit of work by Michael DiGiorgio. The show will run until Friday, March 22.
DiGiorgio’s illustrations are based on direct observation of bird species within their natural habitat. (This is his “Resplendent Quetzal,” a watercolor sketch he created in Costa Rica.)
An opening reception for both shows will be on Wednsday, Feb. 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Pegasus Gallery.
Niche hours are Monday to Thursday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
